Get Out The Vote (GOTV)

MVP does not lead GOTV work ourselves; instead, we invest in the local organizing groups best positioned to turn out key voters in the most critical states and races.

Seed the Vote

Seed the Vote (STV) is an MVP ally (and grantee) that is the best at deploying volunteers to phone bank and canvas in person with locally-based grassroots organizations — most of which are MVP grantees!

Why we love Seed the Vote:

  • STV partners with locally rooted groups. STV works with grassroots groups that are of, for, and led by those most impacted by injustice, organizing year-round to win elections in the short term and build power over the long term.
  • STV works with groups that can use non-local volunteers. Many grassroots organizations working in marginalized communities can’t easily absorb or make good use of outside volunteers. STV has identified the groups that can.
  • STV follows and amplifies local groups’ strategy. STV routes volunteers directly to its local partners on the ground, and also organizes its own remote phonebanks, using partners’ voter lists, scripts, and training materials.
  • When you volunteer with STV, you are furthering MVP’s mission. When you volunteer at the direction of and in collaboration with local groups, the voters you reach and the messages you carry support and leverage the groups’ work  — which carries impact that goes well beyond that of candidate campaigns.
